A fluffle of bunnies for Women and Girls charity

November 6, 2020

Members from our club with the help of a member from the Bathhampton WI club have made these beautiful knitted bunnies for the Women and Girls charity supporting period poverty in India. These little gems will be sold to raise money to provide sanitary wear. One bunny will provide sanitary wear for one girl for at least a year.

Lupus UK benefits from yoga classes

July 29, 2020

Club member Diane heard that one of her yoginis Clare Bolden was self isolating and had decided to make face masks in aid of her chosen charity LupusUK. Diane decided to support her by giving free yoga classes online in return for donations towards Clare’s charity. Over £265 was raised.


Helping out at Julian House

July 11, 2020

Julian House needed much help at their store house to sort out all the incoming donations of clothes and goods. There’s been an influx of donations accumulated during the Covid-19 pandemic so more help was needed and Rosemary, Fiona and Mary were able to lend a hand.


Virtual birthday celebration raises money for Shared Lives Plus

June 27, 2020

Club member Diane decided to hold a virtual birthday party with club members to raise money for the SharedLivesPlus charity. A charity that provides care in the home very often with a buddy system. It was their awareness and fundraising week so we thought we would help out. We raised £85.

Seeing it was Ascot week we thought we would have a bit of fun and wear a hat. A pity the cake couldn’t be shared!


National Volunteer Week

June 5, 2020

Our members volunteer in many ways from making PPE equipment for local dentists, vets, teachers and shops, ringing up vulerable elderly people every week, running a community shop and post office, volunteering at Devon Wildlife Trust, creating activity packs for families at this critical time.

We try and tick all the boxes when it comes to the UN’s Sustainable Goals.


Walking for WaterAid

May 7, 2020

Rosemary rose to the challenge of walking 49km during March for WaterAid. It should have been 62km but unfortunately the Coronavirus took hold and prevented her from finishing. However, she managed to raise £50. Here are the trainers that helped her along the way supporting the Girlguiding organisation as well.

These shoes were made for walking!

Two of our members have been busy making much needed scrubs, scrub bags and hats for the local RUH hospital. Being self isolated has its advantages by enabling lots of time dedicated to making these items.
